The Comedy Underground Presents
Lenny Bruce was the first comedian to bring social and political satire to the comedy stage, pushing the envelope and challenging audience preconceptions of what stand-up comedy could be. He forever changed it - was the inspiration for George Carlin, who once shared a paddy wagon with him after an obscenity bust in San Francisco. In our series "The Comedy Underground Presents The Heirs of Lenny Bruce" at the Admiral Theater in West Seattle, we present contemporary comedians who embody the spirit of Mr. Bruce through their performance.
This Show starts Kent WA native DAVID CROWE, who has the distinction of being the only person ever to win both the San Francisco and Seattle Comedy Competitions. A unique performer, Crowe combines sharp commentary with great physicality and a dazzling display of voices and original characters.
Lenny Bruce died of a drug overdose on August 6, 1968, 40 years ago; his place in history is as a comedy innovator and defender of the 1st Amendment.
No comedian in the U.S. since has been convicted of obscenity.
